About Us

Founded in 2006 EA's goal is to offer the best winter experience on the planet, making it easy for you to become an instructor. 

EA have developed a comprehensive ski and snowboard instructor internship programme with partner resorts to allow a straightforward way into the industry for those looking for a new career or gap-year experience.

With an EA internship in the legendary Swiss Alps, participants receive 3-4 weeks intensive training with top qualified BASI instructors, sit their BASI Level 1 and 2 exams, and have the opportunity to join a ski school as a working instructor by Christmas. This streamlined process allows students to develop their skills under tutelage from a BASI ski school and continue these relationships into the working environment.

EA Ski & Snowboard is a BASI Partner and approved by the British Association of Snowsport Instructors (BASI) to promote and sell EA Ski and Snowboard Instructor Internships using the BASI qualification pathway.

    Resort Location - Switzerland

    EA Ski Instructor courses and Grimentz-Zinal offer some of the best freeriding in Switzerland, as well as world-recognised certification and training. Located high up in the Swiss Alps in the magnificent Val d'Anniviers, the Grimentz area until recently was a fairly untouched tourist destination.

    This is huge country, with long runs and deep powder. In fact, the two villages have been quietly gaining a reputation among ski devotees for several years now, without the huge crowds that other regions get
